Written by on June 5, 2019

Australian Officials say a gunman shot dead four people and injured another at five different locations in the northern Australian city of Darwin yesterday.

The 45-year-old suspect, who was known to the police, was arrested an hour after the first shots were reported at about 08:30 GMT.

Police said they believed the man had acted alone. The crime scenes reportedly included a motel and a bar.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the shooting was not terror-related.

Sources say Mass shootings in Australia have been a rare occurrence since the country overhauled its gun laws in 1996, in the wake of a shooting in Tasmania that left 35 dead.
